Arm in Arm Services
Food — More than 1,300 households per month visit our three free Client Choice stores in Trenton and Princeton for access to quality, heart-healthy foods and to personal and family care products; regular delivery to clients who are older or have disabilities; urban community gardens; free health screenings through partner Capital Health System; and nutrition education.
Housing —The Homelessness Prevention program stabilizes some 700 households annually through one-time emergency assistance via back rent, security deposit, utilities, and mortgage aid. Our Housing Stability Case Management Program identifies and works in partnership with individuals and families through regular one-on-one progress meetings, connection to untapped services for which they are eligible, life and job skills training and mentoring, and extended financial support to establish housing stability.
Job Support—This program, named Harvesting Hope, provides 60 adult trainees with on-site job and customer service skill-building experience in our pantry operations; online curriculum for learning and certification in food handling and retail/customer service; life skills mentoring; and job search and interview skills guidance.
License to Succeed—This program provides assistance toward costs and fees associated with obtaining or restoring a driver’s license, a key factor in qualifying for more and better-paying jobs.
